The Stannol team sees the sustainable relationship between people and the environment as part of its value system. Our actions are based on social, ethical and environmental standards, such as those described in the International Labour Organization (ILO) Conventions, the National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights (NAP) and the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Our Code of Conduct is also based on this. In it, we have defined requirements that apply not only to our own employees, but also to those involved in our supply chain.
Our Code of Conduct defines the central minimum requirements in the area of sustainability and fair employment. It is primarily aimed at our suppliers, service providers and business partners. In addition to acting in accordance with the law, we expect all business partners to accept the following requirements and to communicate them to their own suppliers and service providers. Stannol reserves the right to continuously update this Code of Conduct and to have suppliers, service providers and business partners sign it in the future to confirm that it is binding.
